    Default TOMBSTONE CARDGAME

    : I thank you.

    : I 've heard of the game, and looked it up in Webster's, finding a listing under faro (not farrow, which I also tried, which turns out to be a litter of pigs). Then I typed that into google.com and found this definition:



    : (fâr´)*(KEY)* [for Pharaoh, from an old French card design], gambling game played with a pack of 52 cards. First played in France and England, faro was especially popular in U.S. gambling houses in the 19th cent. Players bet against a banker (dealer), who draws two cards–one that wins and another that loses–from the deck (or from a dealing box) to complete a turn. Bets–on which card will win or lose– are placed on each turn.



    : Hope this helps!

    : Kristin
